BLACK WATER COUNTY **Rescheduled date**

**RESCHEDULED DATE** (previously Wednesday 15th April)


Special guests


Through a fusion of folk instruments, punk energy and catchy pop  melodies, Black Water County’s sing along choruses have rile up audiences all  over the UK and across Europe since their first headline tour in 2018.  The five piece, 20 something group of friends from Bournemouth came  together through their love of playing music live. They tell stories of  relationships, the people they meet on the road and their own angsty  experiences of growing up looking through the bottom of a pint glass. 

Fronted by Tim and Shannon’s spirited vocals, the band have kicked  the party off at hundreds of festivals including Boomtown Fair,  Beautiful Days, WOMAD, Larmer Tree and Camp Bestival and have won a place on Fireball’s ‘Fuelling  the Fire Tour’ in 2016 and 2018.

After independently releasing debut album ‘Taking Chances’ in 2017  along with singles ‘One More Beer Won’t Hurt’, ‘Start Something New’,  ‘The Painful Truth’ and ‘Under Skies of Black and Blue’ Black Water  County have been focused on unrelenting gigging and writing the next  album due for a 2020 release.

‘High octane performance style and strong influences from  Flogging Molly, The Rumjacks, The Dreadnoughts, The Pogues and the  Levellers what is there to not like about Black Water County?’ –

‘Their name is steadily starting to spread across the  length and breadth of the UK and beyond. With a European Tour in the  pipeline and a host of summer festivals ahead, the future is looking  very bright for this talented young band.’ – Rock Regeneration

‘It was Black Water County who landed themselves a place  on the stage with Flogging Molly in December. With help from a busload  of Bournemouth lunatics wearing ‘Folk Shit Up’ T-shirts, the Emerald  Isle-influenced six piece started the first moshpit of the evening and  cemented themselves as the judges’ favourite for the south coast  blowout.’ – Kerrang! Features

‘A strong dual vocal, multi-instrumentation and an almost swashbuckling attitude to stage presence.’ –
